This was the easiest recipe I have ever used for shrimp! This was the best tasting sauce by far. I used egg noodles, and added a bag of broccoli into the sauce before serving. I also used Tony Catchers Cajun seasoning in place of the cayenne pepper-because I didn't have any. The whole family LOVED this dish! I will be making this again-it is a keeper!!!
This was excellant! Had the same problem with thickening as others, so just add a couple tbsp of flour. Will definitely make it again!
I followed the recipe but I added lobster with the shrimp. It was excellent. I did add a little cornstarch to thicken the sauce. I will make this again. In fact I have to make it for some of my h.s. students since they feel in love with the smell of the leftovers.
